Massachusetts Must Stand for Peace: Legislative Organizing Meeting
Sat March 27 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT
The Massachusetts Peace and Justice Network has again partnered with progressive legislators to develop seven bills that were filed in the Mass. Legislature in January and February, the beginning of a new, two-year legislative session. The bills address a range of issues, including nuclear weapons, the war in Yemen, Pentagon spending vs. a Moral Budget, divestment from weapons manufacturers, ethics in government, and lack of transparency.
Join us as we hear from advocates and legislators to learn about the Commonwealth Peace Agenda and plan our work to pass these bills. Speakers will include Martha Neumann from Mass Alliance, Jonathan Cohn of Progressive Massachusetts and others to be added.
